It is indeed a great pleasure to be writing about how Jim Romani and his skillful team successfully made history in San Marino, California. Our dream started when we first decided to purchase a late 1930s house in this city. Our unique ideas and requirements were quickly understood by Jim, a well- experienced professional builder and developer whom we have known for decades. His patience and tolerance in transforming our concepts and lifestyle preferences into a grand yet truly functional dwelling are highly commendable. Needless to say, his company’s expertise ranges from initially detailed design drawings to efficient material selection to careful execution of all construction of this extensive home renovation.

We have confidently placed our trust in his masterful hands. We still could never forget how the architectural challenges were faced with a high degree of professionalism and then promptly resolved through his competent leadership. He conscientiously adhered to our multi-generational demands and created interiors of palatial proportions, a refreshing back porch, an organic swimming pool, and the fairy tale garden, all surrounded by the exterior Cape Cod style. Every brick that was worth preserving was meticulously worked into the existing portions whereas the latest technological features are also miraculously incorporated in the overall structure. The crown moldings and graceful staircase seem to effortlessly blend into our bespoke furnishings. In all it is a classic home fitted with modern amenities, visually welcoming guests before they even step in, constantly spoiling the owners, and receiving compliments from neighbors.

We undoubtedly consider Romani Construction the builder of choice for all the luxury you could imagine in a dream home. For us it became a reality in no time.
